I am a sucker for inspirational videos. I love them. I like how a short video can provide insight into a person’s life or a situation you yourself have never encountered. Without further ado, here are my favorite inspirational Youtube videos.
Top Inspirational Youtube Videos: I am Living Life, I am Happy
This inspirational Youtube video is about a young man who has no arms and legs. Yes, the sound of it makes you think this may be one big pity party having us feel sorry for the guy. But you will be surprised. Despite not having any limbs this young man can do a lot of the same activities able bodied people can do as well. He is charming, upbeat, and inspiring. He gives a speech that is funny and moving to a room full of attentive and tearful students.
Top Inspirational Youtube Videos: Christian the Lion
A couple purchased a lion in a foreign country that they saw was living under cruel conditions. For a while they kept it, nurtured it, and loved it. But eventually the lion had to be set back into the wild of Africa. The lion became the leader of his pride which is quite a remarkable feat for a feline raised by humans. Years passed and the caretakers searched for the lion they helped raise and eventually they found him. The reaction of the lion is extraordinary. The bond he and his caretakers shared was unforgettable to the lion. Watch the very touching and heart warming moment that is shared between humans and animals.
Top Inspirational Youtube Videos: Randy Pausch: The Last Lecture
When I saw this Youtube video, I cried. It was haunting and inspirational. Randy Pausch had been diagnosed with a terminal disease that he would inevitably die from. (Randy passed away in July of 2008) He gives a speech entitled “The Last Lecture” that he dedicates not only to his wife and children, but to everyone who wants to know how to live a better life.
Top Inspirational Youtube Videos: Oprah’s Stanford Speech
Oprah gave a speech at Stanford because one of the students in the graduation ceremony was her niece. Oprah is such an eloquent and gifted speaker. This inspirational Youtube video is a must see.
Top Inspirational Youtube Videos: Paul Potts Singing
This Youtube video is a big hit with over 70 million views. Paul Potts is the American Dream come true. He appears on a talent show and when he walks onto the stage you kind of feel sorry for him. He looks totally unlike a celebrity and somewhat frightened. But once he sings, you’ll be amazed.
